Orsa Information

ORSA - The Oldham Roughyeds Supporters Association

The organisation has been successfully run by a small group of very committed fans, for a number of years. Unfortunately, a ‘perfect storm’ of circumstances has now taken its toll and a decision has been made, to begin the winding down of the organisation.


Despite the difficulties of the Covid-19 pandemic, ORSA funds accumulated prior to the season, enabled us to support the club, coaching and playing staff in the following ways:

  • funding of some of the squad’s nutritional requirements;
  • making a donation to the club, to assist with the initial costs of essential equipment, made necessary under the Covd-19 protocol requirements;
  • funding items of new equipment for the squad: 12 tackle shields, water bottles/carriers and various other items;
  • subscribing to the club lottery


ORSA will be gradually wound down over the next few months, but not before we have taken our part in supporting the forthcoming season, in a meaningful way. We will be:

  • continuing our funding of some of the squad’s nutritional requirements;
  • sponsoring 2 of the young players, who have committed to the Roughyeds squad for the new season;
  • using any remaining funds to assist the club in a positive way.

We thank everyone who has contributed to ORSA since it was established as the official, but independent supporters’ organisation in 2010, with memberships, donations, support of fund-raising events and more recently, with donations via the Easyfundraising organisation.
